Over time, we tend to become consumed by non-essential “stuff” (clutter) – we get overwhelmed and distracted by details and low-priority, low-value activities
We waste our time and talents on the “wrong” type of work
We get so “busy being busy”, we lose sight of what is most important to us
As such, our lives become complex, cloudy, confusing and stressful
We start to lose focus, miss opportunities, adopt bad habits, get in comfort zones, and make excuses
Clutter and lack of clarity of purpose reduces our effectiveness, productivity and joy
As you write your purpose statement, consider the spiritual gifts God has given you, consider your Strengths, consider your Temperament, consider what you are passionate about. Your life purpose statement should be consistent with each of these things.
